2001 Volkswagen Jetta GLX VR6 4dr Sedan (2.8L 6cyl 5M)
Great, sporty, practical car. I have
a black/black leather 5spd and I must
say it looks sharp. The woodgrain
interior moldings and blue tachs make
you feel your in a much more expensive
auto. This car is quick but I find
that the front wheel drive offers too
much torque steer. There are times
when I have to fight to keep the car
in straight line. I've driven it 27k
in less than a year w/o a single
problem. I bought this because I
didn't have the money for a BMW at the
time. Even thought it is a great
riding car I wish I would have waited
because the BMW offers so much more
performance-wise over the VW.
Engine is very smooth w/a smooth, even
delivery of power. This car also
offers every option you could ask for
at a decent price. The leather seats
are of high quality & I love the seat
heaters in the winter!
Warranty is a total joke. Who offers
a 24k warranty anyway? Guess they're
spending too much on their marketing.
